I have a question on all this:
Would it be possible to implement more smart links, e.g. links that can
reference to a specific version of software it is linking to?

That is already possible. But this is in most cases not the want way to go.
Since you need to see if other people changes still work with yours. At least
when you plan your changes to the other project.


Then a user could decide if he want to come into the treatmill of
automatically changing his own source whenever the source makes a
breaking change or to be in the situation of beeing forced something in
the own code?

Currently, linking can break the revisioning in the sense that you
cannot reproduce results when linking to a moving target.

At least, the user of links should be able to decide if he wants the
"free running" mode or the versioned one. Would it be complicated to
implement versioned links?

it already exists ;) Just add a rev= attribute to the link.
